BRIDGE Gender and Development in Brief. Issue 6: Reforming Economic Policy

Publisher: Institute of Development Studies UK
Publication Date: Feb 1998
This issue of 'Development and Gender in Brief' traces connections between research, policy and advocacy on gender and economic reform. It highlights a shift in focus from concern with women's welfare towards integrating gender analysis into economic policy design, including agricultural market reform. Two women's initiatives aimed at influencing economic policy are described: the Women's Budget in South Africa and a network lobbying on financial sector reform in Uganda.
